Yesterday a Forza 4 video landed on YouTube (spotted by Kotaku) showing off some of the game’s features and some gameplay footage. In the vid, the racing sim’s touted to be the best looking this year, boats Kinect compatibility and the most support from manufacturers in any game before it.
Since yesterday was April Fools, many thought it was an elaborate prank forged by a fan of the series, but Microsoft’s come out and confirmed that though the footage wasn’t supposed to be released, the vid you’re about to see below the break is indeed real, MS also confirmed that more information concerning Forza Motorsport 4 will race our way soon.
Soon GT5 will allow gamers to save their progress mid-game during endurance races, Polyphony Digital boss has confirmed through a tweet.
Gran Turismo 5. I feel like I’ve already said enough, but if you’re yet to be convinced, maybe, just maybe the Paris promo trailer for the game posted below the break will do the job.
It’s advertising at its finest.
That’s the power of Gran Turismo.
Correction, it’s already taken our breaths away.
I know one thing, the video past the break is the best GT5 fan-made trailer mine eyes have ever beheld. And if Sony doesn’t hire this guy, or at least give him some recognition, shame on them.
It’s quite honestly better than anything they’ve done.
Want to see something awesome? Head past the break to view yet another Gran Turismo 5 trailer. Only this time, it’s the game launch epic.
It’s made possible courtesy of Polyphony Digital so of course, there’s no doubt it’ll be perfect.
When it rains, it pours my friends. Just like that, Europe’s received a release date right after the North American own was announced.
Like a woman you can’t take your eyes off although you know you should, ( your wife’s standing right next to you). And a when you finally do, dreams of her hunt you like a lion after it’s prey, or better yet a relentless virgin after her king.
So too, is the box art of Gran Turismo 5, as the earth is real and water is good to drink, it’s the most sexiest thing we’ve ever seen in gaming.
When last can you sincerely say that you were extremely excited about what the racing genre had to offer? Sure, there are a few titles that have managed to get us semi-hyped but nothing that’s had the power to rejuvenate a dying genre. So will it ever happen, will racing in videogames ever be “cool” again?
Your answer in a nutshell’s yes, and Gran Turismo 5 will be the answer.
Have a girlfriend who’s into cars? You should start singing songs of praise, then, because there’s an opportunity for you to turn a disappointment into a mighty huge blessing.
Buy Gran Turismo 5 as a Christmas gift for your sports-loving girlfriend, and I assure you she’ll love you for life.
It’s coming folks, this for sure, and before Christmas.
UPDATE 2: The game’s delayed in all of Europe too, with the statement from SCEE reading as follows:
“We are sorry to say that Gran Turismo 5 will not be available on the previously announced release date of November 3rd, but the game will be released before Christmas.
We sincerely apologise to GT fans for the delay, however creator Kazunori Yamauchi and the team at Polyphony Digital want to make certain they are creating a racing experience of the highest quality. We are confident that this ambitious game will exceed expectations when it launches later this year. We’ll have more information for you in the near future.”
UPDATE 1: Japan’s delayed also.
Original Story: It’s time we form a gang, buy some expensive Japanese plane tickets, find Polyphony Digital’s studios, and reprimand everybody who works there.
Gran Turismo 5 has been delayed yet again.
In November, gamers the world over will go driving simulator crazy. Don’t ask me why, you know the reason: Gran Turismo 5 will come available in all parts of the world after being 6 years in development.
Judging by what we’ve seen thus far, it’s by miles the best looking game on planet earth, it really is. Polyphony Digital labored hard to make sure the long running franchise continued the tradition of excellence. There are a lot of different options in the game but one of the most outstanding is the ability to create you own track.
Watch how below the break.
You hear the name Gran Turismo and instantly you know its PlayStation’s biggest franchise — and with good reason. See, when you can sell 4 million copies of a demo (Prologue), it says a lot.
So much so that Sony’s been jokingly talking about selling GT5 at “three times the price” knowing you’d probably still by it.
